ROYAL OAK, Mich., Feb. 21, 2011 — First Tech Direct, LLC, a Microsoft Gold
Certified Partner, is proud to announce the successful implementation of
Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 at Borroughs Corporation (Borroughs), a
Michigan-based manufacturer of industrial storage equipment, office storage

fast-growing midsize to large companies, offering a high degree of
scalability, adaptability, and industry-specific functionality.

Dynamics AX solution, including Finance, Production, Projects, Warehouse
Management, CRM, Shop Floor Control and Business Intelligence. They were
also the first Microsoft Dynamics AX customer to go live on Microsoft’s
Management Reporter for financial statements.

experienced in the Project-based, Engineer-to-Order, Configure-to-Order
manufacturing industry. The Microsoft Dynamics AX solution provides us with
improved visibility of our projects, manufacturing processes and supply
chain management so that we can increase profitability and customer
